My Lifesaving Oximeter

Pulse oximeters don’t save lives – but the people who know how to use them do.

Welcome to #MyLifesavingOximeter: a new feature that puts the spotlight on our anaesthesia colleagues at the frontline, and the incredible stories they have to share.

We know there’s a global crisis of unsafe surgery – but we also know there are thousands of operating rooms around the world where dedicated healthcare providers are listening for the beep and striving to keep their patients safe.

Since 2011 we’ve distributed over 15,000 pulse oximeters to more than 100 countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Eastern Europe, and trained thousands of anaesthesia providers in essential skills.

We’re excited to show you how your support, their dedication, and the Lifebox pulse oximeter are making a life-saving difference.

We’ll be sharing regular updates from our colleagues around the world, use the hashtag #MyLifesavingOximeter on social media to stay up-to-date.

And if you know of an operating room that needs a pulse oximeter let us know – and help to write the next life-saving story.
